My memory card wont stay inside my Pentax Optio M50, it pops out as if a spring or something is broken so I'm not sure how I can fix it. Has anyone else had this problem with this camera?

This is a work around since I didn`t want to touch the electrics or ruin the camera which works exceptionally well. The camera still works fine but the memory card had to be held in tightly to the contacts by pressing on the access door. I tried adding a spacer but this affected the door closing. So I extended the length of the memory card by super gluing the surface of a thick broccoli elastic (about 2 mm thick and 1/4" wide) and carefully extending the end of the memory card. Note I applied the glue to the elastic and not the memory card, to prevent capillary action drawing the superglue into the card. After it dried, I trimmed around the card with scissors and tried it out. The final test was to remove the card from the camera and insert it into my laptop to ensure that the pics were captured on the card. Worked like a charm and the cards are cheap, with no adjustments to the camera itself.My memory card wont stay inside my Pentax Optio - _198.jpg

I took photos without memory card inserted and need to transfer the built-in memory photos to memory card. Can someone help me? I have a Pentax Optio M50.


The quickest way to do that is to attach the camera with a USB to the computer directly without any card inserted. Then click Start/My Computer and your internal memory folder should appear as an external memory along with C: D: etc.
There may be also a similar way using the software provided by Canon when you bought the camera?. Hope this works.

Card locked


Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

How do i use my optio m50 as a webcam?


You don't. The Optio was designed as a camera, storing high-resolution images (and videos) to a memory card, not to stream low-resolution video live to another device.
